The jungle drums have been beating again. Apparently some members are unhappy about the way I am ‘picking’ the teams for our friendly matches. This is a little odd, as no teams have been chosen so far!
For the record, the only intention I have is to ensure as many members as possible that wish to be involved, get the opportunity to represent the club, and not simply the first dozen or so who happen to be in the clubhouse when the lists go up. Levels of playing ability are irrelevant, the only qualification is being 55 or over, and having a valid playing handicap.
Our first match (weather permitting) is away at Sturminster Marshall on 10th March. We still need a few more members to sign up for this one as we can take a team of 18. A couple of reserves would be handy too. Please be aware this will be a shotgun start promptly at 9.30 a.m. Let’s just hope for a bit of dry weather in the next couple of weeks!
The eagle-eyed among you will have noticed a change in the date of the away match with Ferndown Forest. Now moved to 2nd July.
